Michael Jackson’s doctor has been convicted of involuntary manslaughter, the least serious homicide offense in the U.S., for causing the singer’s death in 2009 through the powerful anesthetic propofol, the Los Angeles Times reports. Dr. Conrad Murray, a 58-year-old cardiologist, faces a sentence ranging from a maximum of four years in state prison to a minimum of probation. The guilty verdict was reached by a jury of seven men and five women in less than nine hours.
